In Utero Surgery for Spina Bifida

News broke last week of the first Scottish pregnancy to undergo the in utero fetal surgery for spina bifida. But what is this surgery and what does it involve?

When a baby is born with spina bifida their spinal cord is exposed and babies are operated on immediately to close the lesion. However, with the in utero fetal surgery, this operation takes place much earlier.
